Nature means Earth’s natural world. Conservation is to maintain, to protect, and to keep alive. In my understanding, Humans are part of Nature. Future generations will surely judge us with unimaginable harshness if we fail to address the coming global catastrophe. There’s this one remarkable quote by US President Theodore Roosevelt that says “I recognize the right and duty of this generation to develop and use our natural resources, but I do not recognize the right to waste them, or rob by wasteful use, the generations come after us.”
Nature conservation is important because human lives depend on it. All of us can be conservationist. We all want to keep Earth safe, safe for the next generation right? Here are some thoughts that maybe will serves as our guide on conserving nature:
A) We need to make a significant dent in the climate change curve.
B) We need to defend our oceans by challenging water pollution and wasteful and destructive fishing.
C) We need to create a toxin free future with safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals.
D) We need to protect biodiversity.
E) We need to protect our rain forests. Rain-forests produce most of our oxygen. Rain forest plants grow the cure for many illnesses. Rainforests regulate our climate. If rain forests are destroyed billions of living beings will die.
B*S*B works hard to protect all forests on Earth and the animals, plants and people that depend on them.
We campaign for sustainable agriculture. Emissions reductions and increases in the use of energy-efficient technologies are strongly needed.
F) Conservation of local flora, fauna and natural habitats through offering conservation advice on development proposals, planning strategies and environmental impact assessment, law enforcement, research and implementing biodiversity conservation plans.
G) Conducting regular ecological surveys to take inventory and update the status of biodiversity assets to establish an ecological database.
Soil conservation is important to make sure that we have the land
we need to live on.
H) We need to fight soil erosion to protect our future food supplies. Erosion control can be done with grass, mulch or plants. If you see something that's making the soil sick, do everything you can to make the soil healthy again. If you live on a farm, make sure that the soil on your fields and pastures stays right where it is right now!
Erosion control is very important, because it helps to conserve water!
Water conservation is needed for a growing population!
Climate change is among the most pervasive threats to the Earth today.
